This is a bug report for perl from sayd@bug.botik.ru,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.35 running under perl v5.8.8.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
I have following:

# perl -le 'print 12.69-12.16'
0.529999999999999

# perl -le 'print 19.69-19.16'
0.530000000000001

It has forced me to use:
$var = 19.69 - 19.16;
$var = printf ("%.2f", $var);
